Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings will release their new album I Learned the Hard Way on April 6th, and for each preorder that comes in now at the Daptones' official store, the group will donate 15 percent of sales from I Learned the Hard Way to Doctors Without Borders' efforts in Haiti. You can enjoy some great funk-soul music and help out Haiti, all by going here. As an added bonus, the first 1,000 copies of I Learned the Hard Way will be accompanied by a 7'' single of the non-LP track "When I Come Home" and an instrumental B side, and if you act real fast, you can secure one of the first 100 copies of the LP, which will be autographed by Jones and the Dap Kings. To give you a sneak preview of what the Dap Kings have in store, Rolling Stone has your exclusive stream of "When I Come Home" below:

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
